FIC-neo1973 small.jpg

The Neo1973 is the first phone designed to run OpenMoko. It is manufactured by FIC who instigated the OpenMoko project.

Neo1973 Hardware and Disassembling Neo1973 have more information on the hardware.

See OpenMoko, OpenMokoFramework, MokoMakefile and Development resources for more information about source code.

See FAQ for other Frequently Asked Questions.

Availability

  • Phase 0: 36 developers have received their devices. [1]
  • Phase 1: Production should happen late May Official Developer Launch date is unknown. Join the announce mailing list to be notified when it's available.
    • There were two production runs scheduled, for May 10th and 20th, but these have been delayed.
    • Phase 0 eligle developers are receiving their free P1 devices now (2007-05-09) mentioned in above annoucement (source: IRC).
    • About OpenMoko: two-weeks feature freeze for the phase 1 at unknown date.
    • Once openmoko.com goes online, there will be a possibility to pre-order the Neo1973. [2]
    • Order the Neo1973 direct from openmoko.com for US$350 plus shipping. Sales and orders will be worldwide. We are specifically targeting open source community developers.
    • There also will be shipping from EU.[3] [4]
    • At this time the phone will be a working touchscreen phone, but little more. It depends on you and the rest of the community to polish it into a fully usable device.
    • FIC can make as many phones as developers can buy. There might be 6 week delay at most if estimate is wrong. [5]
    • A few weeks after this, announcements will be made of the roadmap to future devices.
  • Phase 1+: Details of this hardware refresh around June [6] (relevant slide visible here too) will be made available at the same time as the announcement of phase 1 availability.[7]
    • WiFi: Atheros AR6K (see also [8])
    • The hardware will update with a faster CPU and "something else everyone has been asking for". (Said at 30:20 in the FOSDEM video.) Which is presumably either a camera or wifi. (about CPU see also [9])
    • There will be no changes in housing. [10]
    • It will probably include an upgrade to 1GB on-board flash. [11]
    • There will be discount for those that bought Phase 1 device. More info will be available before we start selling phase 1 phones. [12] [13]
    • No finalized schedule and specs as of 2007-04-25 [14]
    • May use the SMedia Glamo3362 GPU [15]
    • It may use the s3c2440, if P1+ turns out to be the same as HXD8, as suggested by this kernel patch. However, this contradicts other information [what?], so it might just be an error.
  • Phase 2: September, Mass Market Sale. [16]
    • Same hardware as Phase 1+, software is updated.
    • Online sales will continue.
    • We will also be available in a retail stores and from selected carriers around the world. [17]
    • At this point, we hope your Mom and Dad will want to buy a Neo1973, too.
  • The 2nd generation OpenMoko device will be introduced at this time. We have something special in the works, but again, you will help shape this device.
